Just to add...There has been some question as to whether US are completely safe or not. Some studies have indicated a relationship between impared hearing development, inner ear development, and US.
I think you need to weigh the risks and options you have. Also ask yourself what kind of information can be gathered from a US, in your particular case and determine if the risks are worth it.
There are instances where an US is a great tool and very helpful. There are also times where it is completely over used. Remember, there is almost always some risk with any medical intervention.
